A Glimpse into the Heritage
At Williamson Family Farm, their history is deeply rooted in the very essence of Tennessee itself. The farm’s origins trace back to the dedication and hard work of Bascom and Mitsue Williamson, who established a dairy farm upon their return from the Korean War. Over the years, the farm has witnessed countless memories being made and has played a significant role in the local community’s history.
Since its inception, the Williamson family has diligently maintained the farm’s 200+ acres, resisting the temptation to develop it into a subdivision like many other farms in the area. In 2016, the family took a bold step and began renting out the farm’s barn and buildings for events. Additionally, they introduced a UPick operation during the summer months, further preserving the heritage of the region.
In 2020, Toni and Mark Williamson, the heirs to the farm, embarked on a journey to honor their parents’ legacy and preserve the area’s rich heritage. They transformed the farm into an event center and began implementing plans to expand its offerings, aligning with the region’s farming history.
